    Bi-Annual Checkups

    The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that most patients visit their dentist once every six months for a checkup. At Brand Dental, we take a personalized approach to dental care and may recommend more checkups for higher-risk patients or less checkups for lower-risk patients. We’ll help you understand your specific needs and what to expect with each visit.

    Identify & Treat Common Issues

    Regular checkups are essential to identify and treat common dental issues before they become more serious problems, including:

    • Plaque & Tartar Buildup
    • Teeth Staining
    • Gum Disease
    • Cavities
    • Oral Cancer
    • Cracked & Chipped Teeth
    • And More

    Preventive Dentistry Services

    We offer a full range of preventive dentistry services to help you maintain good oral health:

    Dental Cleaning

    Brushing at home doesn’t remove all plaque. Plaque builds up between your teeth and under your gums, becoming tartar. Using specialized tools, our hygienists will remove this plaque and tartar for you.

    X-Rays & Imaging

    We have digital X-rays, a panoramic machine, and a CBCT. We use digital imaging to benchmark your progress, spot trouble signs early, and can even create cosmetic smile designs virtually. We take HD intraoral photos, which allow us to show your dental issues to you first hand and the treatment that may be needed.

    Periodontal Care

    Left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, mouth pain, and worse. During your checkup, we will examine your mouth for early signs of gum disease and we will provide a deep cleaning if needed. 

    Dental Sealants

    Dental sealants are a thin coating placed on your teeth that can help to prevent cavities from forming. According to the ADA, sealants can reduce the risk of decay in molars by 80%!

    Night Guards

    You may be grinding your teeth at night without realizing it. Severe grinding can lead to tooth damage, jaw pain, and more. A custom night guard can help to cushion and protect your teeth from damage. 

    Dental Care & Your Overall Health

    Did you know that your oral health can impact the rest of your body as well? Left unchecked, bacteria in your mouth can cause oral infections and may travel to other areas in your body via your respiratory and digestive tracks. Studies have linked poor oral health as a contributing factor for several diseases including:

    • Cardiovascular Disease
    • Pneumonia
    • Diabetes
    • Respiratory Disease
    • Cancer
    • Pregnancy Complications

    Regular checkups and preventive dentistry can help you to reduce bacteria buildup and keep an eye on issues that may contribute to or exacerbate other health conditions you are experiencing.
